  2. I think this article was written before the good Dr Yong Poovorawan announced that the new strain in Thailand, although similar to the UK variant, was different. It actually matches the variant that has been circulating Cambodia for over month. Unless the earlier article was not translated correctly of course.
  3. I get the feeling they are expecting large numbers if at around a 1000 a day now and still expecting 400 plus daily in a month. I do hope that's an overestimation.
  4. I have read this several times to try and understand the process. I may be wrong but to me it looks like private companies need to apply to the Thai FDA to import vaccines, after approval is granted by the FDA, those companies/organisations can import vaccines and then the hospitals or clinics can negotiate with said companies to supply them vaccines. I hope i have misunderstood this and there are NOT a lot of already rich people applying to be middlemen to earn lots of Baht from this importation of vaccines.

  7. This is all very bad news for Thailands opening plans and anyone hoping to visit this year.
  8. This seems to going on a tangent away from the article unfortunately. From the bottom of my heart, i truly hope the Thai resilience to C19 that has been seen over the last year, wether from the tropical heat, from the spicy food, stronger bodies, better diet or whatever else has helped reduce the severity of the virus on the good people of Thailand, continues to minimalise the impact if the Kent/UK varient takes hold. We all have loved ones in Thailand who we want to see again soon and this new development has me worried for their safety, and also fearful that all the recent a

  10. Agreed, but there is a reason why the private sector can not yet purchase vaccines. Thai virologist Dr Yong Poovorawan explaines why.https://www.phnompenhpost.com/international/thai-virologist-breaks-down-why-private-sector-cant-procure-covid-19-vaccines There is probably a miriad of regulations involved in moving a vaccine from emergency use to general use, so it may well be a long time before those that wish to choose the vaccine they use can do so in Thailand.
  11. "He said that 1,200 drink driving checkpoints following the new transparency rules would be set up to stop DUI. In addition there would be another 1,700 checkpoints to check for other infringements on the roads.".........Which do not follow the new transparancy rules. Cha-ching
